confirmed dead in algeria. cnn communicates with another hostage who managed to escape. the nra's power is growing even after newtown. let's go "outfront." good evening. i'm erin burnett. "outfront" tonight, breaking news on lance armstrong. coming clean, part two. the 41-year-old former cyclist continued his confession with more revelations about his cheating and lying for more than a decade. ed lavandera has been following the story. he's in austin tonight. ed? >> reporter: erin, oprah promised leading into this interview that it was at times emotional, and on this second night is when we finally saw some of that emotion. lance armstrong becoming the most emotional we saw him in this two-night interview when he had to explain to his kids that he had been lying all along for more than a decade. >> when this all really started, i saw my son defending me and saying that's not true. what you're saying about my dad is not true. and it almost goes to this question of why now. yeah. that's when i knew i had to tell him. and he'd never asked me. he'd never said, dad, is this true? he trusted

the nra concerns. baker says that when he mentioned the need to fully enforce existing gun laws the vice-president said this, we simply don't have the time or manpower to prosecute everybody lies on the form, checks the wrong box or answers a question and accurately. virginia state lawmaker choosing what was probably one of the most asinine ways he could have to make a point about gun-control. delegate john morrissey saying the viejo gun laws are too lax. he pulled out an ak-47 on the floor of the state house yesterday. watch him. >> i brought an ak-47 with me. here it is. point it at the ceiling. unloaded. lou: his colleagues to my gasping with surprise, even shocked. one interrupted them to suggest that he take his thumb out of the trigger guard. his dad did not work by any measure. his bill to ban the sale of assault rifles and high-capacity magazines failed to pass from a subcommittee. that gun-control group is under some severe criticism for airing what critics call a despicable and dangerous at targeting a moderate democrat. during his 2012 reelection campaign congressman john barr
are not as united on as they are on some other issues. gwen: who are his biggest friends, his enemies? the n.r.a., they brought his children into the debate. >> this is in a video, the n.r.a. put on their website. this was going to basically enrage their members. this was not an effort by the n.r.a. to bring moderate people into the argument on their side. i think the -- the republicans have basically been very cool -- cruel to the president, out right hostile. john boehner said they'll take up these measures one by one. the senate is going to go in a piecemeal fashion. what interests me is the senate on the gun and on the second term agenda. harry reid said about 10 of the 23 democrats may have a real problem with this gun control agenda. maybe the number's a little bit shorter than that. but you're talking about democrats in states likele north carolina, arkansas, alaska, colorado, who will have trouble supporting the president on a whole host of these issues. it's one thing for the president to demonize the republicans and he's doing that and he's taking on a much more confrontational approac
checks to keep guns out of the wrong hands. if they say no, ask them why not. >> the nra response was predictably immediate. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? why is he's skeptical about putting our security in schools? his daughter's school are armed by security guards. mr. obama demand the wealthy pay their fair of taxes but there he is just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. protection for their kids and gun-free zones for hours. -- for ours. >> at the white house, and jay carney said that ad was repugnant and cowardly. the nra says the ad is not in anyone's child in particular and anyone the claims otherwise is intentionally trying to change the topic were missing the point. incidentally, once the president stopped -- started to talk about curtailing gun violence, gun sales went through the roof. >> it is true public opinion has changed and there is more desire for gun-control than ever, but i do not think congress will budge on the bic stuff. it is not going to get done. it is posturing. with the nra did was odious. i thi
, bob schieffer are running around comparing the nra to usama bin laden and adolf hitler. rush limbaugh on that. >> where is the media outrage at bob schieffer comparing obama gun initiative with the civil rights act of 1964. killing bin laden and then the hitler comparison? surely if we can defeat hitler we can wipe out in nra. i mean surely. why does the left get away with this. this is awe tenseably a journalist. >> eric: rush has a point. >> bob: he does not at all. people , a lot of people, including myself think they're thugs. they have intimidated people. if we can defeat the other people, the guys ought to be a piece of cake and they should be. >> eric: group of law-abiding citizens comparing it to bin laden and hitler. >> bob: not the nra membe membership. there are fine good people out there. the nra itself. the big nra building and inside that building are real thugs. >> eric: we dug up state bill 759. 5 # state senators voted yea to clamp down on the school shooters. one voted nee and one was present. barack obama in the present vote. >> andrea: voting present is the least c
to the democrats in the next presidential election is governor chris christie of new jersey. recently the nra took out an add saying that president obama is a hypocrite because he sends his children to school protected by armed guards and that he doesn't want armed guards at other schools. christie didn't like that ad by the nra and said this. >> don't be dragging people's children into this. it's wrong. and i think it demeans them. and it makes them less of a valid, trusted source of information on the real issues that confront this debate. >> so what did you think? >> well, a reasonable objection to the nra, remember, he is from new jersey, a blue state. he has got to get reelected this year. and he has a legitimate beef with the ad. i frankly think the underlying point of the nra ad accurate one. there is is elite in america which is comfortable with having guards in private schools and is dismissive of the idea that we ought to have people with, you know, law enforcement officials with guns available in other schools as well. is he very, has a lot of people in public life are sensitive about a
from the nra and he voted for reducing the waiting time from three days to one bag. do you think read a tipping point, that there will be some kind of a seismic change? >> yeah, i do. since the topic is politics and then to add that a lot of people widely credited in 1883 crandell for the reason republicans took the majority for the first time in 40 years. so it really has a lot to do with the politics. i'm very grateful to be at the university of chicago. just another know. only to chicago which sent and called the partisan bipartisan with david axelrod and rahm emanuel. but that's a whole different story. >> we had to come back as bipartisan and this issue. >> if you go so far to the right, come back to the left. but i think the conversation has changed since the unannotated disco stu i don't care whether it's begun discussion or pistol discussion, at this moment in time you have republican and i happen to be one of them with the nra that would be more than happy that a lot of republicans are more than happy to begin to have the conversation about guns. but it has to be the right co
congress. the president has one major fight on his hands. the nra labelled him a hypocrite and called out his daughters. yesterday, senator ted cruz accused the president of exploiting the murder of children to push through gun control legislation, and then there are the real nuts out there. a movement of people who say that the sandy hook tragedy was a hoax. the real purpose was to create a political environment to take away all our guns. the american public is largely on board with at least some of the president's agenda. in a new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll, more than half, 56%, say laws covering the sale of firearms should be stricter. so what realistically can the president do? david corn is washington bureau chief for "mother jones," joy reid is managing editor of thegrio.com, and both are msnbc political analysts. joy, how large should he be looking? >> i think the president needs to go in with a large package obviously, but when you talk to individual lawmakers, particularly on the house side, you get the sense two things have to happen. first of all, something has to pass
were pretty columbine. his entire package fell flat. >> congressman, you had a reading from the nra. you voted for reducing the waiting time for weapons from reduced to one day. do you think we are at a tipping point, but there'll be some kind of a seismic change? >> since the topic of politics, i would add a lot of people lately accredit 1993 crime bill for the reason republicans took a majority for the first time in 40 years and so it really has a lot to do with the politics. i'm very grateful to be at the university of chicago. only in chicago could use something called the nonpartisan and bipartisan center for apologies but david axelrod and rahm emanuel. >> is a whole different story. >> we have to come back with the bipartisan issue. >> and it's sure if he goes so far. the conversation has changed and i will tell you, this goes to a no care whether it's gotten discussion, fiscal discussion or anything else, at this moment in time you have republicans than i happen to be one of them with the ira they would be more than happy to sit down and begin to have a conversation about gu
-interest and-- >> well, they take their cues-- >> i think the n.r.a. shot themselves, a ridiculous metaphor, for some of its recently. they're independent unions and feel they have to do this. >> you think it's tone deaf, but the folks that reach out and say we justifiably need ting this is about justice their cause, aren't they? >> what else do they have. >> neil: what do you think of that, adam, what else do they have? >> that's been my point. i mean, they're fighting for a dwindling share here. so, the alternative-- >> by ticking everybody off, right? >> no, by the way, charles said that they need to make sacrifices. unions have made sacrifices over and over. if you look at concessions they've made in the auto industry, for example, they've made concessions, they've worked-- >> adam, adam. >> they're doing pretty well. >> adam, they make concessions after too late. in other words, they didn't make the concessions as the thing was falling apart. after all the wheels have come off, then they say, hey, by the way-- >> that is a perfect example. the auto industry, the private sector union o
coming from the right is any indication, the president has a major fight on his hands. the nra has labeled him an elitist hypocrite and called out his daughters who receive secret service protection. yesterday senator ted cruz accused the president of exploiting the murder of children to push through gun control legislation, and then there are the real nuts out there. a movement of people who say that the sandy hook tragedy was a hoax. the real purpose was to create a political environment to take away all our guns. the american public is largely on board with at least some of the president's agenda. in a new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll, more than half, 56%, say laws covering the sale of firearms should be stricter. so what realistically can the president do? david corn is washington bureau chief for "mother jones," joy reid is managing editor of thegrio.com, and both are msnbc political analysts. joy, how large should he be looking? >> i think the president needs to go in with a large package obviously, but when you talk to individual lawmakers, particularly on the house s
. >> all right. we have heard a lot about the political strength of the nra. there was a lot of discussion about whether the president would follow up the speech, the moving speech at the memorial with some kind of executive and legislative component and so i guess my first question to you is how -- what were you anticipating you would see from the president? was this more or less than you thought you would get out of him? >> well, i was glad to see the executive orders. we needed to do something and congress hasn't been exactly the best at acting in the last session, so i'm hopeful we can deal with bigger, broader issues when we actually get to some legislation but i'm glad the president took the initiative and really took the lead. >> that leadership effort is critical. if we can continue that kind of relationship you get the president, the executive branch saying this has got to occur, this is what needs to occur, lay out a format giving congress then a renewed opportunity to pass reform legislation that is going to make a difference in the lives of all of our constituents. >> i felt ve
reid in nevada, who is an nra supporter, who's had the nra's support. this is going to be a very tough challenge for him to take on. and he's already sort of making noise that at this point, wait a minute, we're going to have to look at all these proposals. some of them like the checks, background check, really have much more sort of universal support. other things like the assault weapons ban, much tougher to get through. >> i mean, this is harry reid's biggest nightmare having the senate go first on assault weapons ban. this is not something he wants to bring up. i don't think he's, you know, my guess is there are a number of moderate democrats who come from states that are pro-gun states and they, i mean, we know that the last time that washington passed an assault weapons ban, that hurt democrats on the ballot the next time. and this is not a battle everyone in the democratic leadership wants. >> let's bring us now to the local level. i want to bring scott back into this, because i know that you've also talked to our local mayors, oakland mayor gene quan and san francisco mayor ed
responsibility to care for them. >> but the national rifle association, the nra, it got personal, too, releasing a new ad invoking the president's children. >> the president's kids more important than yours? then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their schools? >> this was fine-tuned for friendly audience. one cable channel, a hunting network. shows that not even the president's family is off limits when it comes to the debate over gun violence. meantime, gun sales and membership in the nra are surging. the group says 250,000 new members have joined since the newtown shooting when calls for tougher gun laws began surfacing. senior vice president of security at wed bush securities analyzes companies in the firearms space. you don't have a dog at this fight. you're looking at the companies and profitability of companies. look, a cnn "time"/orc poll found 50% favor stronger gun laws. what's your read? will the words obama and gun legislation be written in the same words of the history book? >> that is certainly the intenti
